Summary

Bestselling Polish crime by award-winning author Zygmunt Miloszewski.

All eyes are on famous prosecutor Teodor Szacki when he investigates a skeleton discovered at a construction site in the idyllic Polish city of Olsztyn. Old bones come as no shock to anyone in this part of Poland, but it turns out these remains are fresh, the flesh chemically removed.

Szacki questions the dead man's wife, only to be left with a suspicion she's hiding something. Then another victim surfaces - a violent husband, alive but maimed - giving rise to a theory: someone's targeting domestic abusers. And as new clues bring the murderer closer to those Szacki holds dear, he begins to understand the terrible rage that drives people to murder.

From acclaimed Polish crime writer Zygmunt Miloszewski comes a gritty, atmospheric pause resister that poses the question, what drives a sane man to kill?

Best Crime Thriller This Year!

Refreshingly unique, highly imaginative and highly satisfying to the very end!
I recommend this author, this novel and this narrator to be the best in the foreign category of psychological crime thrillers for this year. The translation gave the appearance of this being an American book. Bravo!

Life in Poland and the Ukraine is different.

This book was translated into English. Reading writers from other countries has allowed me view their culture, country and stories threw their eyes. This story is about crime and punishment in the Ukraine. I learned alot and the story kept me engaged from beginning to end.

Interesting

I do enjoy Mr Miloszewski's books. Rage being the third I have read and as intricate as the other two. Not sure how I feel about the different endings. The very end in the original Polish and the translated book have left me a bit confused. Perhaps all my questions will be answered if there is a next book

Riveting, twisting and dark

The book twisted and turned through a dark bleak polish countryside to reach a startling conclusion

What a surprise!

Where does Rage rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's in the middle of my list, but it's still good.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The prosecutor because he loves to dress well.

What about Stefan Rudnicki’s performance did you like?

Even though he has an accent, he was easy to understand.

Did Not See That Coming

If you could sum up Rage in three words, what would they be?

What is next?

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot did keep me on the edge of my seat. I liked the characters and had a vested interest in their success. They were very realistic and though they were from a different culture and nation, their humanity made them easy to identify with. At one point I thought, "Oh, here we go - typical story line - and then, suddenly- it wasn't!"

Have you listened to any of Stefan Rudnicki’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First listen - but I enjoyed him.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would have wanted to listen in one sitting - but it isn't in me to stay awake that long!

Any additional comments?

I want more of our lead detective. How are they going to pull it off? Did they leave room to continue?

Not a very credible translation

The narrator for this audio book is wonderful, but he is reading a poor translation. There are no colloquialisms to engage us in the location. It might as well be the states. Dates are very important to the story but are not spoken in the European fashion. The storyline was fine and the character development worked well. The flawed main character is one worth championing but he is such a schlemiel. Too farcical and too unsatisfying but I will seek out the narrator for his lovely expression and richness of voice.

Fabulous! my first translation of a Polish book!

Fantastic! The writing was beautiful, the sequence of events believable, yet kept you on edge!
Early in the story a lot of time was spent on each individual's way of thinking and could become somewhat tedious, however as the story evolves it truly makes the events of understandable and more meaningful!
Really loved this book and am looking for more from this author!!!!
